BOISE, Idaho – Boise State soccer player Liz Ruiz battled and overcame the elements and a slew of shots from the Lady Techsters to earn this week’s Bronco Athlete of the Week honors. Ruiz recorded her second shutout of the season to lead the Broncos to their first WAC win.

Ruiz, a sophomore from Boise, made seven saves with six coming in the second half to preserve the win for the Broncos in a heavy rainstorm in Ruston, La. on Sunday. She leads the team with 42 saves in eight games between the posts this season. The win improved the Broncos to 6-4-4 overall and 1-1 in the WAC while handing the Techsters only their second loss of the season.

The Broncos return home this week for a pair of games against Utah State and Nevada on Friday and Sunday, respectively. The volleyball team will also continue WAC play at home when they host New Mexico State on Thursday. Men’s tennis will also be in action this weekend as well as the swimming and diving team kicking off its season at the WAC Shootout.
